I don't have a style per se. Rather, I prefer to bring out the best I can in each model.
March 1 we are moving our studio to Rosarito on the ocean at punta bandera baja
[b]We are now collaborating with our muse(s) on the new book featuring one model in each book. A unique project that will be the center of an entire project. Thank you for all the models who have applied to be included. Book 2 in the series will be ready April 5 for purchase direct from the publisher or on Amazon.

35 years of experience. Commercial, fine art and landscapes. Published widely. Write in several publications. Currently shooting fashion and catalogs. Shoot occasional TFP/TFCD for exceptional models with style.
My wife Diana (MM# 534164)
and I always shoot as a team.
After all these years one thing I have learned is if we don't "click" we probably won't produce great images. All that we ask is that the models be mature (in thought) and action. In other words, professional.
Because of this passion, we help models with ports, Zed Cards and representation.
I cut my teeth in the darkroom. I am more of the "retro" side of the team, shooting in the "old style" of 60's black and white. Diana is much more experimental than I. She has never seen the inside of a darkroom. Hmmmm. THAT could be interesting.
We currently shoot catalogs and commercial work. My work hangs in several permanent collections and a few museums. We also do private commission work especially 40x60 metallic or canvas for offices and home.
We are still striving to create that ONE memorable photograph! Perhaps, you'll be the one.
If I go a day without doing something photographic I feel deprived and reduced.
